14 year old Malley is being sent way to a boarding school that ’ ll displace her from her sunny home state of Florida to the chilly climes of the American North-East – and she doesn ’ t “ do ” cold climates.

Enter Skink, the eccentric 72 year old officially “ dead ” former governor of Florida now turned eco-warrior, who decides to help Richard track down Malley.

Well, just because Skink is a young adult novell, doesn ’ t mean Hiaasen can be sloppy in his work, like being artlessly heavy-handed with the eco-messages.

As a recurring character from Hiaasen ’ s adult novels, he ’ s a complex and charismatic person – it ’ s ust a shame that level of effort is missing from Hiaasen ’ s young adult characters.

But though Skink ’ s the great haracter, it ’ s obviousl nearly enough to make Skink No Surrender worth reading.

This two set off on thi road trip, looking for Malley, and not liking what they 're finding out about Malley 's new boyfriend along the way.This book was great, and he only explanatio I do n't ive it five stars is because Malley was, als, annoying.
